i found a batch of eggs, and thanks to the website offered above (thanks) i found out they are common hawk moths, the eggs are now inside, in a container.

thought i would have a go at hand rearing, then the catipilars are not in my garden and when the pupa is ready to go will realease the moths. will keep you guys updated!

I found these yesterday. Is this what the pupa turns into? they are very big, and quite pretty.

Hi there,

I was transplanting a shrub and I found this burried down in the roots. So took a picture and then burried it back where I found it. Minus the shrub of course!

It moved, its a pupa of some sort. But of what? Anyone know?
